Learning objectives

Recently, the importance of promoting local health and ensure proximity of care for patients emerged as evident from different perspectives. Covid-19 pandemic was an exceptional period that brought awareness to politicians, professionals, and people about the necessity of renewing lives in terms of sustainability, digital access to services, and social connectedness. How is it possible to pursue these objectives also in inner areas, mountain areas or small islands? How is it possible to guarantee equity of treatment and excellence of care when citizens live far from large welfare centres? PROREMOTE is designed to present evidence and applied cases to answering these questions.
The Seasonal School will introduce participants specifically to the urgent topic of proximity-care according to the social, psychological, experimental and engineer sciences. Students will be involved on the issues inherent to the enhancement of data, organizational models, and technological solutions for local areas. Implications for decision making and service management will be provided, with a focus on the support to innovation of services and on the strengthening social protection networks of the analysed contexts.

Teaching methodologies

Students will find an interactive and interdisciplinary learning environment that facilitates problems understanding, setting, and solving, as well as the development of a decision-making process that considers and values all the actors of the analysed contexts. Several experts from different disciplines will participate in the program presenting their competence and experience.

Who should attend this Seasonal School

PROREMOTE is mainly aimed at students of master’s degree courses in Economics, Management, Political Science, Management Engineering, Organizational Sciences and Sociology, as well as students of the last two years of Medicine and Health Professions (and equivalent). Any other applications may be considered.
